So much time has passed…

Time speeds up as you age, it’s like a bell curve: one day you’re working on a project and BOOM you wake up and realize months, or years have flown by. Your baby boy is now a young man, your energy ebbs, the ease and quickness you used to take for granted slows by slow degrees to a crawl as your health deteriorates. Oh yes, children, you will be there too one day, looking into a mirror and saying to the stranger staring back at you, “Who in the FUCK is THAT old man, and why is he in my house?!”.

But work HAS been done, and GHOST VOICES (which I consider a far more important project is nearing completion) and then I will embark upon a new aspect of my art: screenwriting and film making.

GOD please grant me the time to finish GV, and my website, and see my grandchildren and so many other things I love in this incredible world you have created for us.

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieve it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Spotify and SoundCloud

I’ve thought I heard a glitch, or clicks in some of my Spotify streams, and some other people have said the same thing. I’m asking CDBaby (who compressed and distributed the digital FLACS I gave them) to look into it for me.

In the meantime I uploaded a few songs to my SoundCloud account – you are welcome to listen to those songs if you get the clicking shit from Spotify (they are higher quality anyway: 320 Kbps MP3s). Thanks.

Cyb-Log

This is the first blog post. In the story the CYBORG became a celebrity and posted a CYB-LOG for his followers, and at first I thought it would be amusing to try something like that, and also give readers some insights into his frame of mind as he travelled the stars, but decided against it, I mean it would turn into a novel and I just don’t have the time. If I ever get the screenplay off the ground (which I’m seriously considering crowdsourcing – if you have serious writing skills and are interested in helping me finish the screenplay please contact me. I am REALLY picky and opinionated about CYBORG, it is my baby and I hold the right to veto, but if you contribute something you will get credit, and if it gets made into a movie I will try to compensate you monetarily for you contribution. That being said, I don’t even know if I will be fairly compensated – movie moguls are notorious for fucking writers in the ass), I think that his CYB-LOG would be a cool element to work into the script. I’m good at ideas and action, I suck at dialogue – that’s where I need help: futuristic, believable so-fucking-real you are there dialogue.

So anyway, here on this website this will be a traditional blog, where I will just post news regarding the C.Y.B.O.R.G. project and music, things going on with my band and me (I know “band and I” is “proper” grammar, but I don’t talk that way in real life and I hate that kind of pretentious shit, so I write like I talk), and updates to the website etc. – basically, just anything new going on that might interest people who like this album and want to stay informed. I’m notoriously bad about updating stuff, but I promise I will try to change and become a better (or at least more consistent) blogger :)

So I guess the first news is I’m trying to install a sidebar plugin that will allow people to share things they like without it being annoying (and I need to hear shit like that – if I change the site in some way that pisses you off TELL ME about it please).

I’m also working on installing a plugin that will allow people to be notified of new stuff through their RSS feed. I follow about a dozen sites that way, I don’t have time to go visit sites I like on the off chance they might have added stuff to it, and I’m sure you are just as busy, so I feel it’s kind of a courtesy thing.

So wack to bork (+3 bonus points to oldsters who get that reference).
